This blog will be issued every Monday, Wednesday, and Saturday morning and updated if the weather is changing or critical or interesting weather events are occurring.
We will be under a weather pattern like the one shown on the map below for the next week. The jetstream will bring low pressure troughs and frontal systems rapidly across the Pacific and then as they reach the coast they will be pulled northeastward and weakened. This means the systems passing across Northern California will be fast moving and relatively weak.
Today we will have partly cloudy to cloudy skies. The next storm will move through Sunday afternoon and early Monday with light rain or showers. Snow levels will be 4000 to 5000 feet. Monday will be a break and then a weak system will bring light rain to the coast range, the northern mountains, the valley north of Red Bluff, and the Sierra Cascade north of Plumas county. Snow levels will be 5000 to 6000 feet.
Thursday afternoon and Friday a slightly stronger system will bring rain to all of the north state with snow levels near 4000 feet. The next storm will move into the area late Saturday and Sunday.
